Shovel sand and not snow! The Minnesota Zoo invites you to their annual Tropical Beach Party. From a tropical trail teeming with wildlife to an underwater world and two large indoor sandboxes, using a total of 34 tons of sand to fill both sandboxes. Both sandboxes are open daily and will provide family fun for everyone. Bring your pail or favorite sandbox toy for maximum beach fun! It’s the perfect cure for cabin fever.
